Re: Rosacea?!?! now...@ 22 yo?!?!
No, you aren't born with it, other than having an ethnic tendency to have it. When I was diagnosed, I was told it usually flares up at about my age, which was thirty.
I was prescribed a cream called metrogel, but I haven't ever refilled. I avoid the trigger, which for me is heat, and treat flare ups with Aloe Vera gel from Fruit of the Earth.
Food and alcohol can also be triggers.
